New Volvo XC60 — first test drive

Looking for hints of aggression in the crossover of new generation.

To distinguish the face from the big new XC60 XC90 difficult. Give two hints. “Shestidesyati” grill — with single straps, a T‑shaped section of navigation lights stretched to the center.To distinguish the face from the big new XC60 XC90 difficult.

What a time. Every second of the automaker’s lineup — all clones obtained by scaling. Line one model from another does not distinguish, neither outside nor inside. Volvo here and there. After the crossover XC90, which so pleased the customers appeared S90 and V90, and it became clear that the Swedes collect their collection of dolls: is it safe to assume, will look like the new S60 sedan and small crossover XC40.

New XC60, fortunately, kept the brand a rising sill line, and the profile of the machine recognizable. Thank you to the artists and for the fact that I saved the main legacy of the Volvo — Swedish cubist exterior and interior, the rough plaque, which was erected in the absolute cars in the 700 and 900 series.

Forever young

Look at the statistics of European sales and could not believe my eyes: produced since 2008, the XC60 even in the last couple of years was a leader in its segment! Left behind and the Audi Q5, and successfully shot the Mercedes-Benz GLC. This year for the leadership beating the same trio, but the fight escalated, because the ring introduced an updated machine (ZR, № 3 and № 7, 2017).

After the XC90, the Swedes did not say the interior is nothing new. All is good here, but with the functions placed on the steering wheel keys, too clever by half — will have to get used to. And the driver seat is not perfect: if you push the extender cushion, will fall into the formed recess.After the XC90, the Swedes did not say the interior is nothing new.

Successful car need to be updated very carefully. Disappoint buyers — will lose revenue. But Volvo has been a trial balloon — launched two and a half years ago, the XC90. Beginner XC60 is much closer to his older brother than it may seem. A similar design, the same modular platform SPA. The engine range, despite the difference in class is like a blueprint: “turboservice” Drive-E, a pair of petrol and diesel, plus a powerful hybrid (407 HP). The same 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, and the devices differ only by a couple of nuances. Even in the options parity: the XC60 has got the luxury of air suspension and four-zone climate control.

On the first or second

Machine increased by 44 mm long, 11 mm wide, and as much as 91 mm increased wheelbase.

The first thing I climbed in the back seat. Wow, that was spacious! Sitting “behind myself”, estimated supply of space at the knees almost in hand. But if it is sitting, swallowing pole (good thing the ceiling is lacking), and just relax and feet rest in hard plastic, which is lined with the backs of the front seats.

Rear armrest comfortable, and in a niche rests a smartphone.Rear armrest comfortable, and in a niche rests a smartphone. Hatch for long-length small — literally with two hands.Hatch for long-length small — literally with two hands.

Adjustments at the rear of the seat any, even the headrest on a long tradition volvovsky “stationary”. USB connectors are also there, as compensation to two sockets, 12 and 230 V. But with the climate, a full order — two-zone unit. The deflectors look literally from all sides, is provided and heated seats. In General, even sitting behind a tall driver, I haven’t spent the most intense two hours.

The front, of course, interesting. I really like the multimedia system Sensus Connect with 9-inch vertical display is good and the logic menu, and performance. Main screen with large blocks of basic information support two minor whose virtual keys are encouraged to compose according to your taste.

The trunk volume is “under the curtain” — 505 litres (+ 10 litres).The trunk volume is “under the curtain” — 505 litres (+ 10 litres). Underground find tires (European cars don’t have a spare), and — unexpectedly! — air suspension cylinders.Underground find tires (European cars don’t have a spare), and — unexpectedly! — air suspension cylinders.

But with the “sensoriales” Swedes overdone: standard buttons are almost gone! All settings of the climate system (except the rear window defogger mode “all the wind”) moved to “TV” — and for any mode changes you need to make at least two clicks on the display. Helps partially voice control. Suffice it to say: “I’m cold” — and electronic intelligence is exhibited will increase the temperature by one degree. But sometimes, the computer you hear something and you have to point a finger at the screen.

The light?

Let the engine stylish faceted cube on the center tunnel (it should be turning counter-clockwise) and pulled out on the streets of Barcelona. Under the wheels of the rough asphalt, and I put the highest score for noise isolation: indeed premium! Interior panels are with the perfect fit is dumb, the materials are no worse than German cars. Except that the key lock on the driver’s door rustic.

For the washer fluid reservoir, I chose the most inconvenient spot: under the windscreen next to hinder the hood. Yes, and on the left side of the body — pour antifreeze on the side of the road will be unsafe.For the washer fluid reservoir, I chose the most inconvenient spot: under the windscreen next to hinder the hood.

Now in my hands a powerful version of the T6. Question resource is shaken right up to the 320-HP two-liter “four” will leave for later — time will tell.

No doubt that T6 is laid out honestly to the passport 5.9 seconds to hundreds. However, this spurt some mundane, uninteresting nerve. On the one hand, it’s a compliment: insulation “keeps” the engine into the cabin even at high revs. But if you paid for the “herd of horses”, legitimately waiting for the flash of temperament, emotions! And the XC60 is afraid to rycote exhaust even in the terrible Dynamic mode. The sanctity of family values?

After a quick, but carefully it hides “benzinka” take the keys to the diesel version D5. The four-cylinder engine produces 235 HP and a powerful torque 480 N·m, which is already available from 1750 rpm. So every sharp the starting — almost like a shot. The pedal is sensitive, “sharp”: a little hit — throw. Still works PowerPulse!

This system fights turbojoe at low revs in first two gears, when the traditional failure is particularly critical. Separate compressor with electric pumps of the air, passed clean filter with a two-liter bottle. With a sharp press on the gas pedal the accumulated air is directed straight to the turbine, and this compensates for the lack of exhaust flow to promote. Stock in the tank is enough for two injections, but the engineers assured me that even in city traffic with frequent stroganymi system PowerPulse always alert.

On the XC60 debuted help system when driving over obstacles. It creates an additional impulse on the steering wheel and simultaneously retarding internal to the turn of the wheel. Signal the beginning of work of the assistant are the actions of the driver: on your own machine to change the band will not. The system works at speeds from 50 to 100 km/h On the XC60 debuted help system when driving over obstacles.

The family in the first place

The turbo is almost the only source of enthusiasm and fire. Air suspension, regardless of the mode selected is extremely soft. Turns “shestidesyati” he writes confidently, but deep rolls suggesting, I would slow down. Even a “drawing” of the liquid crystal devices felt calm.

A chic seat with ventilation and massage functions with five programs, each of which has three settings of intensity and speed: the total of 45 possible options. And I give up, roll smoothly, steadily. Why struggle with the turns, when they can just drive?

To like a new XC60 with all my heart, it is imperative to have children, a country house and to evaporate all the gasoline from your blood. If everything is already done, sign up in the queue. Sales will begin at the turn of 2017 and 2018.

Platform SPA: double wishbone front and rear transverse spring. By order of the adaptive shock absorbers Four-C adjustable air suspension. The car on standard suspension the ground clearance is 216 mm, the predecessor he was more — 230 mm. Platform SPA: double wishbone front and rear transverse spring. By order of the adaptive shock absorbers Four-C adjustable air suspension. The car on standard suspension the ground clearance is 216 mm, the predecessor he was more — 230 mm.

Suppose that the initial price will not exceed the three-millionth bar of the luxury tax, but well-equipped machine will, of course, more expensive.

Recommend diesel Volvo XC60 D5: easy zhivinka, it’s surprisingly comfortable and relatively cheaper petrol version T6 is cheaper, takes less fuel, transport tax will be modest.

Of 2640 we have sold in the past year, the XC60 is the first generation of almost 95% is diesel! I am sure that this proportion will remain and a new car. No one I’m so smart.
